Share Your World – Pet Rocks and Outside

Hello friends! It’s time to share your world again! I’m actually a little late to this game this week, maybe barely getting it in, but I’m about to move and so things are getting hectic. Share your answers with me or better yet, with the original poster!

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?

No. What does one even do with a pet rock? Water it? Create a little home for it, like grass and other friend rocks?  I do follow a dude on instagram, Doodle Stones, a guy in St. Louis, who does art on rocks he finds around STL and MO, and then leaves them in random places. On principle, I approve of this, because I like art in odd places. I copied the idea a little bit and drew on some rocks around here, but it wasn’t as cool as I hoped. There is one rock I’m holding on to; it’s the first rock Wee One handed to me, ever. That’s going in my bit of precious saves from my daughter.

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

I’m a hard worker; that’s a good strength, but I want to talk about my superpower. That’s right, I have one: perception. Intuition. It helped me in my work with my addicted and mentally ill clients. I could ask them a question and knew the answer based on the look on their face. It helps me with WO right now, although being able to tell what an 18 month old isn’t terribly difficult.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Being outside. And you know what else I’ve recently found? Playing. I remember one afternoon, I was having a hard time, so I sat with WO and acted out some scenes between stuffed animals she has, and felt uplifted when we were done.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not be able to eat cold food. I’m already a little sensitive to cold food. So.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Last week, I’m grateful for some time WO and I got at Lake Sammamish. She loved it.

This coming week, my last full week in Seattle, and I’ve sort of filled it with things to do. On Thursday, some girlfriends and I are going to take the kids and hike Rainier. (Not all of it, but it sounds cool that way, does it?) I’m overwhelmed by the prospect of everything we’re doing this, our last week, but I’m excited we’re healthy and able to do it.

Okay, your turn.
